THE OLD TEAR AND THE NEW [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 1 January 1869

THE OLD TEAR AND THE NEW The year 1808, which has just closed, has been one of the most eventful in the history of our country. Political issues of immense importance have been settled, as we lielieve, finally, by means of the never-failing ballots of the most intelligent and powerful people on the globe. The triumphant election of Grant to the Presidency, means the final triumph of that sound llepubliean principle: "Equality before the Law."' It means that every man, without regard to race, color or creed shall be protected and defended, if necessary, by the strong arm of a re-united nation, in the unmolested enjoyment of "Life. Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." It means that every man in this country shall henceforth enjoy the right to himself and his labor; to the happiness afforded him around his own family circle; to the right of following the dictates of his own conscience as to his duty to God; it means a higher and more perfect system of education, improvement, ...

FEES OF COL'XTY OFFICERS [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 1 January 1869

FEES OF COL'XTY OFFICERS "We notice that a resolution has passed both branches of the Philadelphia City Councils, requesting the Legislature to enact some law looking towards the regulation of the fees of the county officers of that city. "When the Legislature begins that business, it is hoped that it will not confine itself to Philadelphia alone. There are other localities that sadly need attending to. It is said that illegal fees are oftener taken than legal ones. This whole business needs looking after, and nobody will object to it but dishonest office-holders. ¦ a . mm -

THE U. S. HENAT0B8HIP. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 1 January 1869

THE U. S. HENAT0B8HIP. Thus far we have carefully avoided any expression of preference for this or that candidate for the Senatorship. We have, however, expressed a strong desire to secure a sound, radical and true representative man—one whose record is niaele, and whose name is prominently ielentilicel with the rise and progress, anel the various trials and triumphs of the Republican party in Pennsylvania. We have also avoided expressing any single personal preference, because we do not claim the control of a single member of cither branch of the Legislature, and could not hope, therefore, to back up our choice by a sing le vote. Yet it is some satisfaction to know that our ideas as to the kind of a man we should have to represent our great State in the Senate, are also the views of every intelligent and honest Republican. According * to present indications the rig ht man will be chosen— Gen. James K. Moorhcad, at present one of the Representatives in Congress, from glorious ...

There ! was no light in the entry; one of the men | appeared to be disguised and walked away I rapidly after leaving the house. This . witness is a German, and an Insurance agent, named Chas. Altget.

KNAVERY IN TRADE. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 1 January 1869

KNAVERY IN TRADE. The New York World lias turned its attention to the swindles practiced by the grocery dealers in that city, exposing the "tricks" of the retailers in a most heartless manner. Besides showing up the fact of the adulterations, the name and number of every firm thus far detected sire given in full, with the articles purchased and the amount short. In the article of tea alone, the adulterants are tea leaves , leaves of the beach, elm, horse chestnut , starch, rice, husks, excrement of silk worms, and sand.

MARYLAND JUSTICE. I he Baltimore American has a letter from Cumberland, Md., giving a special account of a terrible assassination committed there, at a fair, held by colored people, in the Methodist church, on Christinas night. Four men named Sykes Sills, John McGricr, Michael Ryan " and Thomas Summons, the same lawless scoundrels who attacked a Republican procession some time ago, rushed into the church in the evening when the fair was going on, causing terrible fright and consternation. They cried aloud for a colored man named Jones Cook. Not finding him, Sills and McGricr cautiht a colored man nnmceV Vwlty Ross, beat him, pushed him against tlie stove, and then stabbed him through the heart, when he instantl y fellelead.

THE LAM ACT OF A TRAITOR! [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 1 January 1869

THE LAM ACT OF A TRAITOR! Andrew Johnson has Idled his cup of infamy. He has issued his proclamation granting unconditional pardon to Jell'. Davis, Robert E. I.ee, John C. Breckinridge, and other rebels, who did all they could to break up the best Government on earth. This proclamation frees Jell". Davis from the indictment for treason no v. - hanging over him, and restores the whole crew of rebels to citizenship. Not a single traitor is excepted. Thanks to a loyal Congress this proclamation does not affect the disqualification to hold ofliec. Andy lias done his worst, and two short months will rid the American people of a doubledistilled rebel , worse even than Jeff. Davis himself, who, we doubt not, in his inmost soul dispises the poor tool who, in an evil hour, was elevated lo his present position. What a pleasant reflection this act must he to the Senatorial scoundrels who helped him out of the Impeachment last spring! tg" \\ c are indebted to a friend for a copy of "The...

» POOR PEOPLE." [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 1 January 1869

» POOR PEOPLE." We recently referred to the constant harping of some of the Democratic papers—among which, the Heading Daily Kiojle is most prominent—about the everlasting " poor people." Said paper insists upon classifying "the Workingmen and IMowbolders" as the poor of the country, whilst we contend that, as a general rule, the plowholders and workingmen are the most independent class of people living, and that, generally, the poor men arc those who make themselves and their families poor—not by " working" and "plowing," but by idleness, extravagance, intemperance, and the prevailing follies of fashion. With this simple statement as to the differene'is of opinion between FATHER AIIRAHAM and the Emjh. on the subject of "poor people." we leave for each intel ligent reader to determine which is correct. But, we must not quit this subject without laying before our readers a choice extract from the Eeiyle's last editorial on this subject. After considerable pitching into the wi...

TIIADDEUK STEVENS. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 1 January 1869

TIIADDEUK STEVENS. A Reminiscence. From the eulogy pronounced by the Hon. J. K. Moorehend, on Mr. Stevens, in Congress, we extract the following paragraph, which cannot but be read with interest, especially by those who remember the speech alluded to: " In lSoO, being a visitor in this city, I obtained, through the courtesy of a friend, admittance to the floor of tho House. Mr. Stevens was upon the floor at the time speaking on the evils of slavery. The leailing members from the slaveholding States were gathereil in front of his elesk. As he portrayed the elegradation and crime of slavery in such a manner as he only could portray them,scowls Bcttleel upon their brows, contempt curleel their lips, and oaths could be distinctly heard hissing between their teeth. This was in the days when southern gentlemen enforced their arguments with an appeal to the duel, anel southern ruflians resorted to the bowie-knife anil bludgeon.

Wc have a number of letters in regard to Legislative reform—of which several were intended for publication, but excluded becauso they arc not free from serious objection. AVe will only add, to what we have already said, that the people of the State—particularly the Republicans—want radical reform; that, for the purpose of proving, beyond the shadow of doubt, that about &10,000 can be saved in a single department, we propose to do the same work by contract which has cost the State over #20,000 in 1807, and nearly, or quite, .«40 ,-000 during the session of 1808. for .*5,000, and give ample security that the work will be well anel promptly executed.

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 1 January 1869

MISCELLANEOUS. lERRIllf.K Al'KAIK AT CINCINNATI.— Between two and three o'clock on AVednesday mornini:, cries of a woman exclaiming "Oh (bid!" "Oh God!" followed by the report of a gun, were heard to proceed from a house on Central Avenue. On entering the premises the police discovered a man lying dead on the floor with one side of his head completely blown off. Lying across bis breast was a woman also dead. Beside the murdered man lay a gun with which the deed was done.
